Strain Data Arrangement

Comments are shown in blue letters.

Spacer Organism group: archaea, bacteria or fungi

Correct name of the species, followed by author(s) and year of publication.

The former name(s) of the species.

Taxonomic type strain of the species

Strain designation
The designation(s) given to the strain by scientist(s) who studied it.

Other collection no. or WDCM no.
Accession numbers in other collections (see abbreviations of culture collections of prokaryotes (bacteria) - compiled by J. Euzeby) or number of WDCM Reference Strain Catalogue

Isolated from
Source of isolation according to the data provided by the depositor to the DSMZ and/or according to a publication

History of the strain before deposit into the DSMZ. This strain was isolated by J.V. Cook who handed it over the NCTC and so forth.

Cultivation conditions
Culture medium and growth conditions which ensure good recovery and growth of the strain upon receipt. The recipe giving the composition of the media is linked to the media number. Media are not offered by the DSMZ for sale. For hints how to handle specific groups of archaea or bacteria see Culture Technology

Summary and additional information

Summary and additional information on taxonomic data (e.g. nucleic acid studies, chemotaxonomical data), on production of enzymes or metabolites, on degradation abilities, or on biotechnological applications are given under this heading followed by the reference number(s).

The peptidoglycan (murein) type (here murein A31) of the strain is indicated by a short code developed at the DSMZ (Schumann, P.; 2012). See key table to connect that code with the classification system of peptidoglycans by Schleifer and Kandler (1972).
